About Me

Denise Silk supports leaders like you.

Leaders willing to open up; create stronger, deeper and more engaging connections with their audience; leaders with an important message to share, leaders willing to hear and trust their inner wisdom to guide them. Leaders who listen and reflect beyond what they see or hear.

Denise is a respected and sought after communications expert. She is a global speechwriter and coach with an expertise in human behaviour enabling her to help support people to find their true voice and bring this into the world.

Denise has an uncanny ability to understand both sides; seeing the needs of both the speaker and the audience; and finding the thread to bring them together. She is a brilliant writer who knows how to find the right words to express your message and can build a strategy with individuals to be the best speakers they can be.

Denise’s background started in Corporate Finance leading teams across Asia Pacific region and Global projects spanning 120 countries.  Denise was first introduced to the world of global communications during a crisis. Denise made her mark globally with a communication strategy that navigated 30,000+ employees back into a “smooth operation” status.

 

Denise quickly became a communications advisor to Executives, Vice Presidents, Business Leaders and Finance Leaders across the globe. Denise maintains a very high level of integrity and was often brought in to advise on situations with highly classified and sensitive information as well as being a trusted confidant and advisor for senior leaders.

Denise also brings an extensive background in developing and facilitating Leadership Curriculums, Diversity Programs, Culture Change Initiatives, plus Team Building Programs on both a local and global level.

It wasn’t always this way though; Denise grew up exceptionally quiet, unable to speak up, yet somewhere inside she always knew she had a voice. Much of her own journey has been about discovering her voice and learning how to communicate effectively, learning how to be understood and how to engage and inspire others around the world. She knows first hand the importance of being a good communicator for career progression, having gained three promotions off the back of presentations she gave to senior leaders. She brings a wealth of personal stories to her coaching and teaching and openly shares with her clients. She understands first hand how you feel and is there to help you along the way.

Denise has worked extensively across the globe and lived in four countries (Australia, USA, Singapore and China) and inherently understands how to communicate with diverse and dispersed audiences.

She is a member of the Professional Speechwriters Association, UK Speechwriters Guild and is a trained Demartini Facilitator. She has previously been certified as a project management professional, internal auditor and accountant.

 Denise will help you find your voice and inspire those around you.
